Day 1 and two cups of coffee down the line and i’m enjoying(!!) coming up with hugely unoriginal, alliterated and slightly ironic titles (which are necessary and you’ll know what I mean if you read sociology journals) for my dissertation but can’t quite imagine myself writing any of them yet… how about ‘Curry and Chips: Looking at postmodern cultural identity and what it means to be British’…
Okay so being a bit more seriouserer - I can’t find any real sociological research that’s gone into this, only newspaper articles and dodgy looking political groups. I think it’s a really interesting topic - if a little cliched.
It can be a maybe perhaps uncertainty, but for now it’s back to the drawing board!
P.s. actually, there has been research done on it (of course there has Alice you big idiot) -
Biku Parekh (The Political Quarterly)
Krishan Kumar (an actual whole book!)
David Miller (Journal of Ethnic and Migration studies)
Oh shizzle. I need to put my originality hat on.
P.s.s. this is the stupidest blog post I’ve ever made and I haven’t even lost my ‘I’ve been working too much’ sanity yet.
